The 2nd in the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries. Very well done. I enjoyed this even more than the first one. It was nice to see the characters develop further, especially the relationship between Nora & Michael.

I put off reading this book, because book one was forgettable. I couldnt recall the plot or the murderer from book one. Book two was really good, and I think I have to lay the blame on me and not the author. How could I forget such great fun characters? Yes these three Blackbird widows may have had money once but these women are so real and down to earth and just plain full of life. It made me wish I had 3 fun friends like this. I will go on to read book three and might re-skim book one to refresh my memory.

Nora Blackbird is asked by the young police detective for help again. A young woman is found dead in the bottom of a pool with officials saying it is a suicide but Nora and the young detective know better. Meanwhile, Libby, Nora's sister, is due to have her baby any minute so Nora needs to keep tabs on her too. Some very funny parts in this book and I am loving the budding romance between Nora and Michael.

I picked this up along with a bunch of other books as part of my New Year's Resolution to make more time for myself. Not my cup of tea when it comes to mysteries. Too much focus on fashion and high society characters that I couldn't get into but I have other friends who love the Blackbird Sisters series of mysteries.

The death was ruled as a suicide...but high society reporter Nora Blackbird finds that hard to believe. The dead woman is Laura Cooper, a woman who stole jewels from her friends at various charity functions. Nobody liked her, including her husband and family. When the death starts looking like murder, everyone looks to the husband, Flan Cooper, as the culprit. But Nora knows that her old college boyfriend would never kill anybody. Now she must prove it.

This was a nice cozy romance with some humor. I liked it better than the first book in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.

I thought I would give the series a try. Some of the reviews I read compared the series favorably to Janet Evanovich. In reality the series is readable, but not very funny with very little depth in the characters. A decent series to pass the time, but not if you are looking for something with meat in it. These books are okay bedtime reading in that they will not cause you to have bad dreams--or good ones either.

Humorous xozy series featuring three sisters who grew up in Philadelphia high society and now find themselves broke. If you like humor and high fashion with a dash of romance -- I recommend this series!

Just a good cozy read. From the book jacket: "When a high society jewel thief winds up drowned at the bottom of a pool with a tacky garden gnome tied to her ankles, Nora must swing into action to save her old flame, Flan Cooper, from a murder charge. But then a politically ambitious millionaire with hushed up secrets, a dotty grande dame with a penchant for polo teams, amd a cat fancier who keeps a gun with his silver tea set all steer suspicion onto Nora herself. It's enough to make the blue bloods of Philadelphia turn pale! Nora must find the killer on her own - or rish trading her grandmother's couture for an orange jumpsuit. All in a an ex-debutante's day's work, Nora. All in a day's work."

I liked this book much better than the first one. It held my interest early on. The sisters are hilarious and get mixed up in so much trouble! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Good story; good characters. A fun read. A former debutante in the Philadelpha high society, Nora Blackbird, has to make her own way in the world after her thoughtless parents decamped to South America with the entire family fortune, leaving their children only debts. Nora is trying to make it as a society reporter, but bad luck lands her with a dead body and a killer to find. Even though this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone mystery.
